I'm a mom trying to plan a spring break vacation for my family – there'll be four of us and the kids are ages 11 and 7. I cannot decide whether a trip to Scandinavia in the early part of spring will be fun/affordable or simply too risky due to weather!
We would fly into Stockholm on March 26 and then fly home out of Copenhagen on April 9. I love the idea of experiencing Easter in Europe, and my kids are huge LEGO fans so we'd want to see Copenhagen's flagship store at a minimum and probably also go to Legoland in Billund. We'd also want to see castles, hike a little if possible, visit some (kid-friendly) museums, etc.
We spent last spring break in Barcelona/Seville/Granada/Cordoba and LOVED it. However, I realize Spain and Scandinavia are two very different destinations in early springtime! We're pretty tough and can handle less than ideal weather, but I wonder whether cooler temps will make it feel less like a vacation and more like something we have to grit our teeth through in order to have fun.
I have to decide whether or not to book this trip by Oct. 4, so any advice is greatly appreciated!
